Hello, it is 3:26 AM where I am. What helps me is to just get up and go to the computer and talk to all of you. When I keep my mind busy eventually I will get sleepy and go back to bed.
Remember you can only think of one thing at a time so if your focused on the posts here you can not be worrying about something else.........stay focused.
Hope you can get some sleep.

I find that writing these thoughts down helps me. Even if I have to switch on the nightlight and write the same thing down 400 times.
I also try and say to myself "I cannot do anything about it tonight" over and over. Because I can't. If that still doesn't help then I read and try to get the "cycle" of negative thoughts out of my head.
I hope this helps. Sweet dreams
I don't know how to stop the scratching in your sleep. Can you maybe wear cotton gloves? It may look silly..but if it works!!
I get bruises in my sleep. I don't know HOW. But almost every morning I wake up with anew one. Mostly on my arms. I'm running out of excuses as to why they are there. I am not exactly the extreme sport type.
hostas, what great advice! I'm going to try that as well. I wonder if Jonny Depp will be my leading man?
happy vel, great input too a bath really soothes doesn't it? I got a bath pillow and salts for my birthday and sometimes my partner has to prise me out of the tub!
Good to hear from you and know you are getting to sleep.......... keep on doing whatever your doing as it is working.
